New AMDGPU DC Patches Published, More Work Towards FreeSync

AMD's Linux team working on the AMDGPU DC display code sent out a set of 29 more patches this week.

Due to the DRM-Next cutoff for new feature material being this week and Alex Deucher previously indicating the final 4.15 pull of their Radeon work, these latest AMDGPU DC patches are most likely early material that will then arrive with Linux 4.16. But the initial AMDGPU DC display code is still on track for debuting with Linux 4.15, should Linus Torvalds not have any objections.

These 29 additional AMDGPU DC patches touch around one thousand lines of code and have a diverse range of changes. The work includes removing an "annoying" FreeSync warning, fixing FreeSync and amd-stg that had regressed in recent patches, fixing an issue when plugging in displays during the S3 suspend mode, many fixes found during the Raven Ridge bring-up, and various other Raven Ridge fixes and improvements.

These latest AMDGPU DC patches can be found here. It will be interesting to see how the Raven Ridge Linux support is once the laptops begin shipping in the weeks ahead.
